My DIY Home and Beauty Favorites

I love the idea of certain commercial products and what they do, but I just hate all the chemicals and toxins they’re loaded with, so I started making a lot of my own home and beauty favorites. Below are some of my absolute favorites that are easy and smell great.

HOME

“Febreeze”:

  • Keep an empty bottle
  • Fill about ¾ of the way with distilled water
  • Add 2 TBS of baking soda
  • Add essential oils of your liking to the concentration you like. I use Doterra oils: 20 drops Serenity, 20 drops lavender, 15 drops cedarwood, 10 drops sandalwood. (I tend to go heavy on the oils because of having two dogs in the house.)
  • Spray as you would Febreeze

Bathroom/shower cleaner:

  • Keep an empty spray bottle
  • Fill about ½ way with Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Bleach
  • Fill another ¼ of the way with distilled vinegar
  • Fill rest of the way with water
  • Add essential oils of your liking to the concentration you like. I use Doterra oils: 10 drops lemon, 10 drops orange
  • Use as you would commercial bathroom cleaner

Dog-friendly weed killer:

  • Keep an empty bottle
  • Fill ¼ of the way with distilled vinegar
  • Fill ¼ of the way with organic Castille Soap (can buy on Amazon)
  • Fill rest of the way with water
  • Shake well and soak those weeds

With Peace and Love,
